NEW TUTORIAL - Horned Bangle Bracelet Beaded with Peyote Stitch

This tutorial explains how to bead weave a bracelet with seed beads and thread. No fancy shapes required! The Horned Bangle Bracelet is inspired by a workshop with Kate McKinnon on Contemporary Geometric Beadwork. This bracelet is a hollow tube and somewhat flexible. It measures 14 mm wide and 11 mm thick.

This tutorial includes step-by-step instructions for weaving the bracelet into a continuous bangle. For a short project, use fewer repeats to make a donut.

This tutorial is designed for advanced beginning bead weavers who know peyote stitch.

The tutorial is 9 pages, including 60 illustrations and photographs. The tutorial is a PDF file that gives step-by-step instructions for the bracelet and donuts.

You can make the horned cable with any size seed beads you like. Use all one size, or for a better fit, make the L beads one size larger. The smaller donut is made with size 15° and 11° seed beads. It measures 26 mm (1 inch) in diameter and 10 mm thick. It is a little too small to fit my pinky finger.

The larger donut measures 4 cm wide and is made with all size 11° seed beads. It fits my thumb.

The bracelet is made with size 11° and 8° seed beads, and if you want to make a faster chunky version, use size 8° and 6°.
